Rural Property description
Situated on the beautiful sunny east coast of King Island, (now the home to two of the most spectacular golf courses in the world), and tucked up in a hidden valley below Fraser Bluff, is the stunning King Island property known as "Rocky Glen".
A property like this, on the east coast, in such a unique location, close to the water and services is impossible to replicate. There is not another to be found.
This is a property with endless possibilities, only limited by your imagination. It is only the third time this property has been offered for sale since originally settled.
Set up currently as home with a licensed restaurant attached, and three chalets, situated on 31.5 hectares.
Given the expansive, elevated and level area of land sitting up on the Bluff behind the current infrastructure, and the "Particular Zoning" attributes, the enterprise is ideally suited to taking the enterprise to the next level, tapping into the expanding reputation of the Island as a world class golfing destination.
Or you could use the property for your own personal delight, with plenty of accommodation for your family and friends, to enjoy the beautiful location and its surrounds, as you watch the world pass by.
Set at the end of a no through road, out of sight of the rest of the world, peace is virtually guaranteed, but with the ever changing pristine waters of Sea Elephant Bay and Bass Strait at your door step, to enjoy.
Don't let this once in a lifetime opportunity slip away from you.
The property is located beyond the southern end of the Naracoopa township, a small seaside village situated on the mid-east coast of King Island and approximately 25 kilometres east of Currie, the island's residential and commercial hub, with schools and hospital and shops.
Naracoopa has a growing mix of permanent residents and holidaymakers that can be accommodated in a range of tourist type accommodation.
King Island is situated at the western entrance to Bass Strait between Tasmania and Victoria and is serviced by air and sea transport from both the mainland and Tasmania. King Island has a population of approximately 1,600.
The business known as "Rocky Glen Retreat", had been developed as a licensed restaurant (seating for 100 patrons,) with three independent chalet accommodation units, as well as the main residence.
The land is comprised of a single title (CT 142927/1 - 31.5 hectares) which is zoned as "Particular Purpose", as determined by the King Island Interim Planning Scheme 2013. Current uses are permitted and or have existing use rights.
The property has frontage to The Esplanade ("Lovers Lane") and a foreshore frontage onto Sea Elephant Bay and Bass Strait, of approximately 1km. A second frontage also with vehicular access is from Millwood Road, which forms part of the western boundary.

- Main residence (351m2) of four bedrooms,
